Very cheap shock with a stiff spring.
They are good for holding the car up, and for street use.
Not a good shock for off road.

use the shox till you can either afford to replace them, or you have to replace them. my car came with the bilsteins. good choice for being a desert car.

I'm running them because I had them. Put them on the new project and the first time I went over a berm and slammed the front down blew both front shocks.
Nice car. Try some color back polish before a paint job, you might be surprised.

LOL yeah if it is flaking off it needs paint, probably wasn't primered.
From the pictures it looked mostly faded. Color back works great on oxidized faded paint, basically a fine rubbing compound.
